Description

Ground-up almonds take the place of flour in this dense, chocolatey cake, which is inflected with almond and vanilla extracts. Meanwhile, egg whites are whipped until stiff peaks form and then folded back into the batter to keep it airy. After baking, the resulting cake is fudgy and rich, requiring nothing more than a sprinkle of powdered sugar before it's served. However, you can opt to frost or ice if, if you'd like.
